Campus housing began in the unfinished basement of Fort Worth Hall in 1910 when the seminary moved from Waco to the present campus in Fort Worth. Today, the seminary provides approximately 630 apartments and houses and more than 350 spaces in two residence halls.
To apply for housing, you must be an approved student. At the time of move-in, the student must be (or will be at the next registration period) a bona fide student enrolled for academic credit in an approved Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary degree or certificate program, maintaining a minimum of six (6) hours per semester (spring and fall).

Campus housing is reserved for current students who are full-time each spring and fall semester (Online and I-term only students are not eligible). One may apply for housing after receiving approval from the Office of Admissions (new students) or the Registrar’s Office (returning students). Online applications to become a student at Southwestern are available here.
Once a student has received approval from the appropriate office, he or she may submit a housing application.
Monthly rent payment is due on or before the first day of each month. The first month’s rent is prorated on a per-day basis beginning on the date of occupancy. Rent continues as long as the tenant has a key (i.e., possession of the property). The only exception to the monthly billing are the residence hall units, which are billed per semester.
Campus Housing keys are given during the Check-In process on the day that the Housing Agreement is signed. For lost keys there is a $25 fee (this fee also applies to mailbox keys). Keys are not to be duplicated by the resident.
After-hours and weekend Check-In in appointments are only available under extenuating circumstances, to accommodate international student arrivals with advanced notice, and with approval of the Office of Residence Life & Housing.
Pets are only permitted in Carroll Park neighborhood and each pet must be pre-approved through the Office of Residence Life & Housing. Pets are not permitted in the Student Village Apartments or the Student Village Townhomes, even under temporary circumstances.

Note: Service animals are not considered pets. A service animal is any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. Service animals perform some of the functions and tasks that the individual with a disability cannot perform for him or herself.
There are two options for selecting a roommate. First, you may choose a preferred roommate of the same gender when you submit your housing application. When you and your selected roommate apply for housing, we will pair you together in the same unit. The second option is to select that you would like to have roommate, and the Office of Residence Life & Housing will match you with another applicant of the same gender with similar preferences. There is no guarantee for specific roommate selection, but we seek to serve all resident well, and will do our best to create opportunities for success in the roommate selection process.
A 30-day notice to the housing office is required for move-out. Graduating students may remain in their housing unit approximately two weeks following graduation and only need to give a 14-day notice. Failure to provide adequate notice may result in the loss of the housing deposit.
We equip each room with a bed, desk, chair, dresser, closet, and bookshelf (Fort Worth Hall only) for each resident. We have compiled a list of suggested items to bring. You may access this list by clicking here.
Yes, each residence hall has multiple RAs, and at least one residence director (RD). RAs live in centrally located rooms on each floor. They plan a variety of activities throughout the semester to promote student life and community within the residence hall. One RA is on duty during the evening.
Each residence hall also has a Residence Director (RD). The RD lives in an apartment within the residence hall. They provide oversight for the RAs and are available to the residents as another source of community and encouragement. RDs are trained to prepare for various situations that may arise in residence halls, from academic challenges to emergencies.
